Just because you’ve decided to run your site on WordPress, doesn’t mean that it has to look like a “blog”. One of the benefits of using a self-hosted install of WordPress as a content management system is that you can easily create a site home page that looks hand built but still has dynamic elements. Below you will find several themes which will allow you to create a home page which will appeal to your customers. I currently use Colorway and Leaf to run sites of my own.
